I'm a little foggy-were you a Vegas resident back during the glory days of the Aladdin shows? If so, and I know this sounds a little vague, did you know a Head named Hippie Joe?

No I was not, nor ever have been, a Vegas Resident, at the time I was living in Boulder, Co going to school at CU. That's one reason I loved the Aladdin shows so much, with so few in town Heads (and I know there were some), this was the closest thing to a Deadhead convention that I ever witnessed. Everyone was in one place and stayed in the same hotel, so the event started the morning of the show when everyone arrived and checked in and lasted until the next morning at check out. the crowd did not disperse and go their seperate ways after the show. It was 8,000 Deadheads at one continuous party.

And to answer your question, I did know a few Vegas Heads, but I do not recall Hippie Joe.
